Life is very grave for Anise. Hospitalized for anorexia, she wonders about the point of it all. Her frigid mother and ineffectual father seem oblivious to her struggle. Her beloved brother is too busy screwing up his own life to take note of hers. Living on the loony ward seems not to be making any difference at all, and Anise feels like a prisoner. Her only free choice is to turn to her journal - the place where she can dream, and where she can decide whether to live or die.

Honestly one of the worst books I've read in a long time. All the characters are very bland and don't have much personality, they're mostly just there to bring the plot forward and don't serve much purpose beyond that. All characters, including the main character, are very two dimensional. The main character doesn't seem to have much personality beyond being anorexic, and reading it you could tell it's not something the author has ever experienced or understands on a personal level. It all felt very textbook and it never really went anywhere, any reactions of the characters seemed more forced than natural, again just to bring the plot forward. I've only awarded it one star because it at least attempts to draw attention to an important issue, although I didn't find it very successful.

Note to recovering people with anorexia: This book is low-triggering. I actually found it helpful.

I loved this book. Absolutely loved it. The somber, yet somehow lighthearted topic of anorexia was portrayed in incredible, realistic detail. The characters were as diverse as their lifestyles. It was an amazing read.
